I believe it is pointless; no one uses it, and I cannot see any
reason why one would need it at configure time.

Attached please find an updated version of the patch.

Paul, I also suggest to edit your chakgelog entry, because i cannot
imagine a case where the macro dir is an absolute path.  That would
effectively mean that the distribution does not contain all primary
sources, and we should not encourage that.

OK to commit?
